PP exports from Russia dropped by 44% in October

November 20/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) -- A shortage in the domestic market has forced Russian producers to reduce exports of polypropylene (PP) in October. Sales to foreign markets fell by 44% from September, according MRC DataScope.

Scheduled and unscheduled outages at Russian PP plants in September-early October led to the shortage in the domestic market. As a result, local producers cut export sales in October in favor of the domestic market to 5,500 tonnes tonnes from 9,900 tonnes in September.

The main importers of Russian polypropylene are Russia, China and Ukraine. October shipments of Russian polymer to Belarus fell to 1,400 tonnes from 2,400 tonnes in September. October exports to China also dropped by almost half to 3,200 tonnes from 1,900 tonnes in September. Shipments to the Ukrainian market declined less sharply last month and totalled 1,200 tonnes (in the previous month - 1,400 tonnes).

The overall exports of Russian PP rose to 81,400 tonnes in January-October, 2013, from 33,600 tonnes in the same period of 2012. Homopolymer of propylene accounts for more than 95% of the total exports.
